A beautiful and characterful handwoven rug, woven on Christabel’s loom in her London studio. Here the design has been woven in brown sheep’s wool, peach and turquoise rug wool on a linen warp, but this rug is also available in the colour combination of your choice.
Christabel’s rugs are made to last and be treasured for years to come. Each one can be customised to suit your home, making a rug that is entirely personal to you. They also make brilliant gifts for extra-special occasions.
How It Works: order the design of your choice on the website. After you’ve placed your order, you will be contacted directly by the artist asking you what colours, thickness and warp (i.e. fringe) you would like for your rug. You can choose up to three colours per design. Then, depending on how many orders are queued for the loom, your rug will be handwoven over the course of several days.
Rugs measuring up to 1m wide should be completed and shipped within 6-8 weeks. Rugs measuring up to 3m wide will be shipped within 10-12 weeks. You will be notified if the wait will be longer.

Christabel Balfour specialised in woven sculpture while studying at the Ruskin School of Art and since graduating has further developed her practise as a weaver; weaving beautiful quality rugs and wall tapestries by hand on her 1976 Harris Rug loom in her London studio.
Christabel is inspired by weaving traditions across the globe and throughout history as well as by the cityscape of London, with its modern architectural lines and the wider countryside of Great Britain. Her work often explores the juxtaposition between the geometry of the city and the natural elements of landscapes.
Christabel can make a handwoven rug to order in any choice of colours; creating a truly unique piece of art for your home.
